The welcoming and warm spirit of southern hospitality paired with the fun-factor and vibrancy of a university campus is exactly what makes Stillwater America's Friendliest College Town. New faces and new friends are a way of life for Stillwater residents who befriend and live alongside students from all over the world each semester.
Before statehood, Stillwater pioneers sought to embrace education as a way of life. On Christmas Day, 1890, Oklahoma State University was established. Our people, our values, our traditions and our sincere welcomes are rooted in the history and legacies paved by those same pioneers and founders of the Cowboy Spirit truly unique to Stillwater, Oklahoma and OSU.
